This is an ultra novice question from an ultra novice person.
I created three overlapping vector paths in Photoshop then applied gradients to them. When I opened the PSD file in Illustrator, I chose "Convert Layers to Objects" then OK. Now, when I choose any two paths in Illustrator, click the blend tool and click on the paths so I can blend their gradients, nothing blends. The paths retain their colors.
What seems to be wrong here and what can I do so I can blend the gradients of the paths?
